As the Holy Spirit directed me in the creation of prophetic songs in color (aka Glory Rings) I realized the symbolic language was an intrinsic portion of the prophetic word. This inspired me to research the Scriptures for Biblical references to the different symbols. The list is not inclusive, perhaps at best a brief introduction to the vastness of the creative Spirit of our Eternal God. Each symbol has within it multiple facets. As example: Bells – sheep bells, door bells, bells in the tower, clock chimes, shepherd’s bell, cow bells, festival bells, holiday bells, dinner bells, class bells, fire alarm bells, etc. The interweaving of the colors, sounds, symbols and numbers of GOD simply enhances the infinite complexity of HIS divine and holy nature. It is always a glorious experience when ELOHIM speaks to us in any language.
